One question: Why doesn't the King of Spain come to Beijing to see the games? Is there any reason for this?

Thanks Lilla
I thought perhaps Sweden and Spain were competing and K Constantine was teasing Q Sofia. They all seemed in a good mood.

I sincerely hope that IOC Prseident does not declare this the best Olympics every, as he usually does at the closing ceremony. I'm starting to see why it maybe wasn't such a good idea to give China the Olympic Games.

¡Silver in taekwando! In the 58kgs. category. That is one of the martial arts. He gets 3.5 millions from the State (33 pesos for 1 dollar). And maybe more from private sources.

There are hopes of gold or silver in boxing next friday. He already has bronze.

Our main star is injured and did not classify for the final. Félix Sánchez, who won gold in Athens 2004 in 400m.hurdles, track and field. Such a pity.

Thanks Julliette.

Lovely photoes.

Unfortunatly Princess Nathalie didn't achieve her goal of ending up among the top 12. She became no. 15.

But she got bronze at the team dressage - and not only was she the one who did the best preformance on her team, it was the first medal for Denmark. We have got others after that but hers was the first.
